August has been a REALLY busy month.  Come look at everything we've been up to!!

So I got this new wagon and it's very cool.  The next day Mommy said I had to take a nap so I thought, 'I should take a nap in my wagon!'.  I went and got her pillow and it fit perfectly.  However, Mom wasn't going for this.  Made for a cute picture though, don't you think?

Bonfante Gardens!!!

I had such a great day.  At first I was afraid of everything, but slowly I warmed up to things.

A little unsure of the water spraying everywhere...

I obviously got over that.

Here I am, being brave, riding the tram.  I was scared at first, but then LOVED it and asked to go again :o)

Mommy and me on the artichoke ride!  I was scared of this at first, too, even though I've been on it before.  But after the tram ride I was ready for anything, especially something dangerous like the artichoke ride!

Mommy has taken up scrapbooking so I thought I'd give it a whirl.  Here I am gluing Thomas the Tank Engine pictures to a piece of paper.

Our trip to Malibu!!!

Mommy and I on the airplane.  We are somewhere over Southern California here.  I look upset, but really I was OK.  I did great on the plane.  Mom was scared to death though.

We got to meet one of Mommy's friends from ZF (her mommies group).  Her name is Janine, and she has a son named Luc that is the same age as me (well, technically he about 2 weeks older).  Luc also has a younger sister, Claire, and an older brother named Andre.  Andre is big into ice hockey and was at hockey camp that day so we met up at the ice rink/training center to hang out.  Luc and I hit it off like we had known each other forever.  We played trains and ran around all morning.  It was great.  Anyway, here are pictures of our visit with them.

This is Luc and I

This picture is significant because it's the first picture of me with any kind of a celebrity :o)  Janine says the man who just happened to skate by in the background below (in the yellow jersey, #1) is named Rob Blake.  He used to play for the Los Angeles Kings but now plays for another team.  Mom snapped this pic on accident, oops!

Oh as a side note, Janine gave me my very first hockey puck!!  It's not any old hockey puck either.  It's signed by Marty McSorley.  He used to play for the Kings but now is a coach.  Isn't that cool?  Thanks Janine!!

Here I am, looking out at the beach and beautiful sunset.  Oh c'mon.  I'm not admiring the sunset.  I'd admiring that awesome playground.  Do you see it?  ;o)
